CH & Co (Ampersand division)

Ampersand offers bespoke catering and impeccable service across a diverse range of esteemed British establishments and day visitor attractions, among them the Historic Royal Palaces, ZSL London Zoo, and the Law Society.

“Juliet worked on some key projects for CH&Co for over a year and will do more I am sure in the future.
She has amazing knowledge and contacts in the restaurant and café business and is inspirational to work with.
Juliet has been a brilliant support to me personally and has felt very much part of our team.
She has shared ideas, inspired and supported some of our key chefs and managers to make exciting changes within our business.
I have no doubt she adds value to any project she takes on”

Alison Tyler - Chief Executive - CH and Co


Amid the South East Asian fast food revolution in London, Dom Kamara and Craig Willis decided to stay grounded and British, sourcing their products from the best suppliers in the UK. So while a hot meat pie and mashed potato might be a staple item on the menu, it’s the very best pie you’ll ever eat. Tesco clearly thought so too, and Farm have just opened a first pop up in their Goodge Street store. And this when it’s no secret that the supermarket is tightening its reins. Look at the Farm website for the mouthwatering menu.

"Thoroughly enjoyed working with Juliet and her knowledge of the industry is unsurpassed. Her views are insightful and totally on-point. We look forward to working with her again."

“We have benefited hugely from Juliet’s experience and knowledge of catering within arts organizations. At an early stage in the planning of the Charleston Barn Project she clarified our thinking in terms of the size and configuration of the space required for our new café and we continue to work with her as our detailed plans develop. The income we are able to generate from our catering operation is particularly important to an independent arts organization which makes the insights and expertise that Juliet brings particularly valuable”. Colin Mckenzie – Director of the Charleston Trust, East Sussex

The imaginative breakfasts will be awesome. Opening end of April 2015.

“Juliet has been a wonderful consultant to have on board with my startup restaurant, Citrus and Cocoa. She has provided priceless guidance, advice and structure to my concept and has given me the confidence and belief to go ahead with the venture. The contacts she has shared with me have also helped massively and am looking forward to working with her on future projects.”

Her creative approach is totally on trend, and on the ball. I would recommend her to anyone starting up in the restaurant business."

Andy Slattery - Director – The Fancy Goat restaurant, West Malling, Kent


La Bandiera is located near Bolgheri, the home of the Super Tuscan wines. The region benefits from a unique climate, close proximity to the coast and a very rich landscape which makes this area a natural habitat for olive groves.

Over 800 olive trees are harvested each year to produce the estate’s exclusive label, premium extra virgin olive oil.

The oil is produced using the traditional cold press technique. The olives are harvested from the moraiolo, leccino and razzo trees when they are just beginning to ripen from the end of October through to the end of November, in order to capture and preserve those characteristics so typical of olive oil from the region of Bolgheri – full-bodied with fruity and spicy aromas.

"Juliet was very helpful in helping to get La Bandiera olive oil launched last year with pricing advice, trade exhibitions and contacts".
